Guidelines for Application to the Tuition Support Program for Nurses

NOTICE: Effective immediately, the Ministry of Health has temporarily suspended acceptance of all mailed and/or couriered documents related to application-based programs. Only applications that are sent by
email to a ministry designated account or via fax (705-564-7493) will be accepted. Applications that include electronic signatures (i.e. scanned original, electronic device applications, or digital) will be accepted in lieu of original, signed documents.

The Tuition Support Program for Nurses is part of the government's commitment to provide more families with access to primary health care, and to support the recruitment and retention of nurses to rural and remote areas across the province.

The Tuition Support Program for Nurses (TSPN) offers tuition reimbursement to recent nursing graduates from rural and remote communities who are new College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) registrants and who choose to do a return-of-service (ROS) in an eligible underserviced community. The program is open to nurse practitioner, registered nurse and registered practical nurse graduates who apply within one year of having graduated from a Canadian University or College.
